Mwenifumbo accuses MCP, UTM of getting ‘dirty money’: UDF to save Malawi from ‘state capture’

United Democratic Front (UDF) presidential running-mate, Frank  Tumpale Mwenifumbo, has said that his party led by the youngest among all presidential candidates, Atupele Muluzi, 40,  is the only hope the country has to be saved from ‘state capture.’

Running mates: Sidik Mia (Malawi Congress Party-MCP), Frank Mwenifumbo (United Democratic Front-UDF) and Michael Usi of UTM at a previous debate

Mwenifumbo, who is also Karonga Central parliamentarian belonging to  Allince for Democrcay (Aford), said when he was responding to a question where the UDF was getting its campaign funding from  live Zodiak television host  Joab Frank Chakhaza during the presidential runningmates debate at Grand Palace Hotel in Mzuzu Tuesday evening.

The outspoken running mate accused his fellows: Michael Usi of UTM Party and Sidik Mia of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) of getting funding from unscrupulous businesspersons in the country who, in turn, will be on their necks to get back what they gave in sinister business contracts that end up punching Malawians in the stomach.

Mwenifumbo, who earlier said that he could not say where UDF got its funding because he was only a running mate and a member of Aford, said it was surprising that some parties started campaigning two years ago.

“Where was all that money coming from? These are billions, and you say that they are donations from members? In this poor country? No,” he retorted.

According to Mwenifumbo, it is only UDF that has started its campaign during the official one announced by pollster Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC).

“Because we knew we were going to use our own resources. No one will come to UDF and claim they gave us money to aid our campaign.

“State capture ends immediately when we take over government on May 21. UDF is the only hope,” said Mwenifumbo.

But both Usi and Mia laughed off Mwenifumbo’s allegation, arguing that all funding was being mobilized by their membership.

“For example, I have put in so much money into the party from my businesses. So too our second vice president Harry Mkandawire. We have held fundraisers to support ourselves, including the buying of party regalia,” said Mia.

Usi, on his part, said all resources used were “donations from the members.”

Earlier, host Chakhaza led the audience in wishing Mwenifumbo a happy birthday.

Bwana Mwenefumbo just learn to quietly accept the honour the Bakili family has conferred on you. Zuma in RSA can’t beat Muluzi snr at corruption so the political godfather of UDF is Bakili. You’re riding on filthy funds oiled by a family that Chakufwa Chihana once accused of total corruption. Mwanafyali ughali we you’ve a bone in the mouth nobody is getting your words clearly

MCP, watch out Mia’s agenda. He has openly told Malawians that MCP is enjoying Cashgate money since the only financiers are himself and Harry Mkandawire, both ex cashgate party (PP). Mia has openly told Malawians that Chakwera is block since Chakwera has contributed nothing for MCP campaign.
Now it is clear that JB sent her boys to MCP to capture it and use it as a branded / laundered PP. Watch out MCP, don’t say that I did not warn you.

Frank Mwenefumbo! Stop throwing stones when everyone knows that your house is made of glass. Atupele Muluzi has not worked anywhere unlike you, atleast you were a Bank clerk.Part of the source of the money that Atupele uses for his campaign was our tax money stolen by his dad.period.

Bakili Muluzi stole thousands of millions of kwachas and is eating the money with Frank and Stacey Msungama who is his second wife and Atupele himself. Atupele is also eating money from another thief Alamu Pumani Mwakalamba. MCP has been asking for money from well wishers who want to save this country from thieves like APM and Bakili. Dpp brought in over 50 Navaras through Namibia. Bakili in his time bought 112 Nissan vehicles and Bingu took him to task. Party membership cards were good but the problem was that people especially villagers were being forced to buy them as… Read more »

Mwenefumbo should realize that Atupele is campaigning now because he is part and parcel of dpp govt as cabinet minister so what could he campaign for. UDF is the party that put this country at an awkward situation.
